Nature of Mutation
DNA sequencing using the SOLiD technique identified a G to A transition at position 640 of the Pfpl transcript in exon 2 of 2 total exons. The mutated nucleotide causes an arginine to glutamine substitution at amino acid 149 of the encoded protein. The mutation has been confirmed by DNA sequencing using the Sanger method (Figure 1).
Protein Function and Prediction
The Pfpl gene encodes a 702 amino acid protein that is predicted to be a pore-forming protein. The membrane-attack complex (MAC) of the complement system forms transmembrane channels. These channels disrupt the phospholipid bilayer of target cells, leading to cell lysis and death (SMART). 
 
The R149Q change is predicted to be probably benign by the PolyPhen program.
